I think Exbal is the single greatest resource for LR shooting available-- although i've got a 906 yd. coyote with an XP 6.5-284 pistol that didn't like it.

Re: First-Hit Ballistic Software!

Does Exbal take input for clicks on the scope. i.e. .125. If not, I have no use for it.

Re: First-Hit Ballistic Software!

That's not good enough for long range work. Scopes change by the increments you have given "in theory". If I find out a scope changes by .271, I need to be able to enter that. You can't claim 'Long Range capability" without it.

Re: First-Hit Ballistic Software!

No doubt that's true-- but i'm not going out as far as u guys are, that's for sure. Are u using any ballistic program that provides that kind of flexibilty.
U know u ought to call the guy-- he's very open-minded about any changes to the program that'll help-- i called him awhile back, and asked him to put the Handgun Burris Ball. Plex subtensions into the program and a wekk later he sent me an update. I think if he had some collaboration from some of u guys here his program couldn't be beat. Contact is at www.perry-systems.com

Re: First-Hit Ballistic Software!

Exbal works great.i have only one thing im not so sure it works with.that is a head wind or tail wind wind.i know they move the bullet very little but they do move it some.the Exbal shows no change at all even with strong head wind or tail winds.when the program first came out it did not do up or down hill changes and now it does.i used the program to make a first round hit on a rock about the size of a beded down deer at 785 yards.my zero was 190 yards the program gave me the rest.i also was shooting up hill so i used the ACI it was up hill enough that the range had to be set at 770 to make the shot,thanks,keith
